WTF?  Probably about the same as everyone else usually demands for their states when a bad Wx event hits them.  What makes this political?  
The forum title for one.  But these are guys who have no need for the Federal Government every other day of the year.

Goof ol' Idaho.  Weighing in from a state with no hurricanes, ever.

Disasters like this are a real tragedy. So are many of our politicians. 
I went to a Conference on Resiliency and one of the speakers was the mayor of a town in (I think) Nebraska that was completely flattened by a tornado.  Like absolutely nothing left.  The very first thing they did in the aftermath was put up a tall grain silo with the city's name on it.  Something so simple to give everyone something to rally around and rebuild.  I thought that was pretty cool and it stuck with me.
